Default i have no clue...

hello everybody!!!!!!! so bought the controller i was asking about it is a Ninco Vario16 10402(the one without the polarity switch on top.)...and i think i adapted it correctly to my track...buuuut when i squeeze the trigger the cars barely move...i fiddled with the dip switches and they make no difference...i have replace my Carrera power pack with 1 each lane, 13 volt 10 amp power supplies, and separated the lanes, and put in reversing switches, the Carrera electronic controller i got works fine,so do the Parma analogs and the Carrera analogs work as well...any thoughts or suggestions? do i need more volts? do the Ninco electronic controllers need more than 13 volts?
I appreciate any help...and thanks in advance...

thanks Mr Mack...so now im thinking...can a controller that has been wired at the factory for one polarity be easily rewired for the opposite polarity????? or is it best to flog the wrong way controller to someone who can use it and buy the right way controller...( too bad i didnt see the polarity on the package...)

Speedy,
You have two threads with the same topic,... but you're explaining yourself more in this thread.

Stryker is correct about the negative polarity, and also the Vario16 is a very old controller and was designed to work with NINCO track. It is no longer supported.

thanks for you kind responses...i took out the two,13 volt 10 amp power supplies and put in a 24 volt(adjustable down to 18 volts and it has two outputs) i had...the NINCO controller works real good now...i think its too much so now its time too build the voltage adjusting switches i have been reading so much about...
